Chelsio T3 1Gb Unified Wire Adapters

Chelsio’s multiport 1 Gigabit Ethernet adapters are optimized for storage applications. The third-generation technology from Chelsio provides the highest 1GbE performance available and dramatically lowers host-system CPU communications overhead.

With on-board hardware that offloads TCP/IP, iSCSI, and iWARP RDMA processing from its host system, the adapters free up host CPU cycles for useful applications. The system achieves increased bandwidth, lower latency, and lower power.

Highlights

  • ‘Unified Wire’ interconnect solution for server networking, storage networking, and clustering on a single platform
  • Full TCP offload, iSCSI, and iWARP RDMA plus direct data placement (DDP)
  • All of Chelsio’s adapters are fully compatible with leading third-party iSCSI Target and Initiator software solutions
  • Reduces host CPU utilization by up to 90% compared to NICs without full offload capabilities
  • PCI Express x4 host bus interface
  • Line-rate 1Gbps full-duplex performance
  • Integrated traffic manager, QoS, and virtualization capabilities
  • TCP sockets, SCSI, RNIC-PI, kDAPL, and OpenFabrics software interfaces
  • Powerful per-connection, per-server, and per-interface configuration and control
  • Provides flexible zero-copy on RX and TX for regular TCP applications, requiring no changes to the sender stack, or receiving application
